*Due to the high volume of feedback at our 2018 course about the shortage of food and need for more beverages, this year there will be a nominal registration fee to help cover the cost of food, beverages, room rental, and other administrative needs. We think it will be well worth your investment!
If you have special diet considerations, maternal needs, or questions/concerns, please email me at email@example.com.
Again we will be submitting for COPE approval. We will have 7 hours total, including 2 hours of Glaucoma.
We follow the ARBO rules. If you are too late for a course then you will not get credit for that hour.
- Gerami Seitzman, MD: highly engaging and personable Cornea/Comprehensive/Uveitis ophthalmologist who can make even dry eyes sound super interesting!
